The link to the American Patriot Party here is weighty indeed... Your quoting and paraphrasing of Madison's arguments as well as those of others, impart absolute credence to the fact that the individual has an unalienable right to Keep and Bear arms in defense of his and others Life, Liberty, and Property, against any and all who would abridge.
"The moment the idea is admitted into society that
property is not as sacred as the law of God, and
that there is not a force of law and public justice
to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence."
"The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue,
and if this cannot be inspired into our People ... they may
change their Rulers and the forms of Government, but they
will not obtain a lasting liberty." --John Adams, June 1776
